Functional Anatomy of the Pelvis and the Sacroiliac Joint
In his newest book, Bodymaster John Gibbons looks at one of the most important areas of the body: the pelvis and the sacroiliac joint.
He takes readers on a fascinating journey of enlightenment, teaching us to recognize pain and dysfunctional patterns that arise from the pelvic girdle.
Gibbons addresses key issues such as:
The walking/gait cycle and its relationship to the pelvic girdle
Leg length discrepancy and its relationship to the kinetic chain
The laws of spinal mechanics
Sacroiliac joint screening
The relationship of the hip joint, gluteal muscles, and lumbar spine to the pelvis
Assessment, treatment and specific core stability exercises for the pelvis and sacroiliac joint
In addition, he provides step-by-step techniques to identify and correct a number of impaired patterns as well as functional exercises for the pelvis that promote recovery.
“ I just wanted to write to you to congratulate you on your new book. It has been a long time since I purchased a reference book where I was so absorbed with each chapter that I could not but it down. Having completed your Bodymaster Method ® Diploma first and then reading this book second it was like reading a novel and then going to the cinema to watch the corresponding film. All the pieces as you put it just seemed to come together to complete the whole jigsaw puzzle in my mind. It has certainly enhanced my way of thinking in the way I will look at treating musculoskeletal bodily dysfunctions and I will be placing it as my number one reference point to go to when working in my clinic. Thank you again for this very well written and easy to understand book on the Pelvis and SIJ.” – Neil Baron BSc – Sports Rehabilitator
